As I have noted, translated, the latter means a Castro toady and some of his pals.
Wait, lemme guess: his doubts arising from an unfully formed opinion have evaporated under further scrutiny, making this the first time further scrutiny led to siding with the global warming movement?
Er, maybe. There’s another option, and that’s that he’s seen the New Hampshire Senate fold like a cardboard suitcase on withdrawing from the RGGI regional cap-n-trade energy tax and has decided to throw in with the go-along-to-get along crowd. In his defense, and not much of one, one could say as Andrew Dice Clay once did about a famous painting I won’t mention here as it would make the gag’s crudeness too obvious: he needed the money.
Yes, yes, I know, running for president brings out the Pander Bear in all of them. But Christie’s entire shtick is that he’s the guy speaking truth to all of these entrenched powers, industries, political sacred cows et al.
So, particularly before we know what his ‘fully formed opinion’ is, I cannot interpret what is behind this. But if it is as seems most likely, we know it this is not a move to position himself for higher office. Yes, it would gain him some McCain-style (that is, conditional and temporary) media love — in the form of proclaiming proof that global warming is real and most Americans are extremists and wrong! — soon to turn to ever-more demanding fury.
But he won his office, in NJ, admitting his doubts. He sees how past pandering indiscretions like Pawlenty’s, Huckabee’s, Huntsman’s and others’ are viewed by the majority. The agenda failed in Congress and greatly contributed to a change in management. ClimateGate remains a fatal wound to be proved as much by the next penny when it drops.
And as I have noted many times, I am NOT a fan of Chris Christie. This latest news just confirms his status as a pandering RINO who never supported one Tea Party Republican candidate (but found time for Mike Castle and Meg Whitman) and is weak on core conservative issues including illegal immigration and defense of the United States Constitution from creeping Sharia. Why any Tea Party activist/conservative wants this guy for president is beyond me. What say you, Ann Coulter?
